Likely Fire Damage Hazards at Your Mississauga Workplace
Get Conclusive Fire Repair in Mississauga by SERVPRO
Any workplace is at risk of fire damage even if there is no kitchen or other area where you deal with open flames. Understanding the risks can help you take sufficient preventive action or respond correctly when an incident affects your Mississauga premises.
Human factors are the main reasons that might lead to fire damage at your Mississauga facility. Negligence or overlooking some issues may seem harmless only for it to cause severe problems. SERVPRO helps businesses prepare to handle various losses, so we can point out some problematic aspects if we evaluate your premises.
Common problems we identify include:
- Improper storage of flammable chemicals
- Placement of heat-generating objects
- Waste and debris storage
- Dust accumulation risks
Knowledge about fire triggers can prevent
Knowing likely fire causes is essential even after an incident happens to limit the chances of recurrence. Many of the issues highlighted as potential causes may develop after the fire. For instance, remnants of burnt materials may be deemed unsalvageable and piled together as debris. If stored haphazardly, they can ignite. Our SERVPRO technicians use large, wheeled trash cans to store materials torn from the ceiling, walls, or furniture. Once work is done, we push them outside the structure as they await final disposal.
The work done to combat fire can predispose your premises to a more extensive fire damage. If an appliance malfunction caused the fire, it might be localized to one spot, but the soot residues and odours spread throughout your premises. The deodorization efforts you mount may involve using solvent-based deodorizers, which easily ignite if there is a spark. Our SERVPRO crews switch off every ignition source, including pilot lights, before we start fogging. We also control the application period to limit residues from settling on surfaces.
Other actions that limit the chances of fire:
- Stripping damaged electrical
- Vacuuming to remove soot from appliances
- Ventilating your property after dry fogging
